       d.northarrow displays a north  arrow  symbol  at  the  given  screen  coordinates.  If  no
       coordinates  are given it will draw the north arrow in the bottom right of the display. It
       can draw the north arrow in a number of styles (see the  wiki  page  for  details).   With
       certain  styles  of north arrow label ’N’ is displayed by default, and can be changed with
       option label, for example for different languages.  The label can be hidden with -t flag.

       North arrow can be rotated, for example to align with true north,  not  grid  north.   The
       angle  in degrees counter-clockwise (or radians with -r flag) can be specified with option
       rotation. Label is rotated together with the arrow, unless flag -w is specified.


       Display a north arrow symbol as a basic compas with label NORTH, rotated by 8 degrees with
       label, with black line and gray fill:
       d.mon wx0
       d.northarrow style=basic_compas rotation=8 label=NORTH -w color=black fill_color=gray
       d.mon -r
